Complete with original commercials.
It seems if you click to a later point in the video, then replay the video, it usually gets back in synch.

Interesting story, especially if you're familiar with the Twilight Zone version. Surprised to see familiar faces and the acting was well done. Thanks for the upload.

I meant Bob, not Roger... I had the name in my head, but at my age I can get things twisted around. Pardon me.
Thank you for reprimand.

Robert (Bob) COBERT did the music for Dark Shadows....NOT Roger Corman, who is a director and producer.
Great that this has the original commercials and such!
